We are not here to fix.

People aren’t broken including ourselves.

They are different, they might be having a difficult period, a rough day, had some bad news, who knows?

They have something that they want to share.

Resist the temptation to fix.

Instead, listen, support, empathise and show love. Apply the same to ourselves, resist the beat up and fix approach, just be compassionate, we are not broken.

That does not mean you can not offer advice or give help. But listen first, as the person may not need help, they just want someone to listen, to share something with, to say something kind.

We are all worthy, we do not need fixing, we are just right in our imperfect condition.

A storm in a teacup

If you were to look back over your lifetime, how many things have happened that greatly impacted your life in a bad way? How many ‘big storms’?
I suspect very few.

Yet so many people are caught up in constant daily drama that serves them no good.

Most of this drama is unimportant.

They are excuses for avoiding getting on with life but they become habits and prohibit progress in the things that matter.

They attract other ‘drama queens’ and if you encounter these people you can become sucked into the drama whirlpool. 

The few big storms we’ve had in our lives we’ve survived, so why then let a storm in a teacup prohibit you living the life you really want?
